Description

As the world's largest raisin plant, Sunmaid Raisin's Plant Number 4 was a major center for raisin packing in Fresno for nearly fifty years. The plant was constructed between 1918 and 1920 on Hamilton and East Avenues. By 1918 more than 85% of California's raisin growers were members of the Sun-Maid cooperative. Raisins were processed and packed here until the 1960s when the cooperative modernized and moved to its current location in Kingsburg, just south of Fresno.
